Merry Christmas to everyone.

This morning we touched the edge of the high pressure that we have been avoiding by keeping a south course and the winds went donw to about 6 knt. We took the spinnaker down and the mainsail and start to motor thru the Sargasso sea.

And unanimously on Blue Note we decided to celebrate Christmas with a swim in the Sargasso Sea.
Soon we are about to have a wonderful Christmas dinner prepared by Nirit (photos tomorrow).
